Kate arrived at the National Portrait Gallery's Portrait Gala – to a host of waiting fans and photographers – in Central London on Tuesday.
Pairing a deep blue silk gown by Jenny Packham – a designer the duchess relied on for her first big night out following the birth of Prince George – with an intricate diamond necklace borrowed from Queen Elizabeth, the 32-year-old dazzled onlookers. With her trademark shiny hair curled, the young royal sported noticeably longer locks.
During her first official engagement of the year, Kate, 32, gave a short speech, welcoming guests to the posh event.

Just your typical family vacation. Royal family, that is.

In her breakout single "Royals," Lorde sings about gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom, blood stains, ball gowns and trashin' the hotel room, among other things.
In conclusion: These are not the first thoughts that come to mind when we think of the Royal Family.
But if the likes of Prince William, Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Prince Harry formed a cover band and took on Lorde, well, we know that power group would win it all at Sunday's Grammy Awards, where the song is up for record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance. (Lorde, 17, is also nominated for best pop vocal album.)
Until then, we'll just let the real royals take the mic.

The joy of succession.
On Thursday, the Palace released four official portraits showcasing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son, Prince George, taken after the young royal was christened on Wednesday.
In one of the historic photographs taken by celebrity photographer Jason Bell Queen Elizabeth sits with three generations of heirs – the Queen, 87, poses with son Prince Charles, 64, grandson Prince William, 31, and 3-month-old Prince George. The image pays homage to a photograph taken in 1894 of Queen Victoria with her four living immediate heirs at the christening of then Prince Edward Albert of York.

A big day for little Prince George.
Lightly jiggled in his father's arms, the 3-month-old looked slightly perplexed at the attention as his parents, Prince William and Kate, greeted clergy at the doors of the baby's special christening service.
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the 35-minute, private ceremony started at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.
Shortly after her arrival with Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth spoke with William and Kate, with smiles all around. Kate – in an Alexander McQueen outfit and nude-and-ivory Jane Taylor hat – greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.
As if to underscore the continuity of the monarchy, there, too, at the chapel door were Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Was it a case of royal stage fright?
Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, may have had a choice seat near the stage for Beyoncé's concert at London's O2 Arena Tuesday. But when the singing star pointed the microphone in the young royal's face and asked her to belt out a line from "Irreplaceable" as she does to audience members each night, Eugenie blanched, according to a report from the U.K.'s Mirror.
According to the report, which cites an eyewitness, Beyoncé didn't apparently recognize Eugenie when she asked her to sing the line "to the left/to the left" in her hit song.
Instead, when she held the microphone out, Eugenie dodged the opportunity, ducking away in embarrassment and dropping to the ground, according to the Mirror report. "All Eugenie's friends were teasing her about her stage fright for hours afterwards," the paper reports, quoting a concertgoer.

The The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keeping a low profile on their "babymoon" to the idyllic island of Mustique.
The couple – expecting their first baby in July – are staying at a five-bedroom villa set in lush gardens, which normally costs an eye-popping $25,000 a week. Also enjoying paradise are Kate's parents Carole and Mike and siblings Pippa and James.
On previous visits, William, 30, has stopped by to grab a drink and play the piano at the bar at Firefly, and together the couple have participated in Sunday night Karaoke at Basil's Bar.
